3:08am
the bp oil well, engineers there have removed a temporary cap that last month stopped all that gushing oil. no additional oil has seeped into the water because the well has been plugged with cement. that temporary cap was removed so that part of the well that failed to stop the spill can now be replaced. then the drilling of a relief well that will plug the broken well for good can proceed. federal safety investigators have been looking into consumer concerns about pampers diapers. that's after photography hundred complaints of severe rashes, all on children who had worn swad letter and cruiser dry max diapers which hit the market a few months ago. investigators could not find a direct link between these diapers and the severe rashes. parents are still urged to report any more complaints. well, first the bubbly. now the brew. another surprise find that's been laying low for 200 years. >> that's right. back in july, divers surveying an early 19th century ship wreck in the baltic sea found what's

3:13am
returning to breaking news coverage on "world news now," hurricane earl hit north carolina's coast last night as a category 2 storm, and now there's a state of emergency in parts of the northeast. >> for sure. we should also mention we're showing on our screen this morning satellite images of the
3:14am
storm as it now is. earl makes its way up the eastern seaboard as well, satellite map there for you as well as a crawl there. the very latest on the storm information. >> which is important because this storm is moving and we are trying to figure out exactly who is next. but we know north carolina in the brunt of it overnight. >> exactly, exactly. and abc's steven portnoy joins us now from kill devil hills, north carolina, with the very latest on what the storm is doing there. hi, steve. >> hey, good morning, guys, from kill devil hills, a city just south of kitty hawk, just north of nags head. it's been relatively easy going this morning. we're not yet seeing the full brunt of the worst winds from earl although it's tracking right up along the eastern shore of north carolina. right now i'd say wind gusts are close to 50 miles per hour here on the barrier islands of the outer banks where we are rocking and rolling in our news van outside as winds push is side to side. it's there's rain but it's relatively light rain. we expect it will intensify as
3:15am
the hours roll on this morning. >> you talk about the conditions happening right now. what about the emergency preparation happening in kill devil hills? the people there who have evacuated. but what about the people who have stayed? what are emergency crews bracing them for this morning? >> there's a mandatory evacuation order for all visitors here in dare county, north carolina, that was issued early this morning. they tried to get folks out. we were out and about earlier. i should say yesterday, thursday, during the day to see who would wind up staying in nags head, in this area, kill devil hills. most people did choose to get out. we're staying at a hotel that is still open, still has electricity, had a band playing in the bar area to keep everybody occupied and happy and never jized. but everyone now basically waiting out the storm, hoping it will pass. thankfully the eye seems to be staying off the coast and not turning further inlard. everyone's hoping that this will all clear out, there won't be a
3:16am
lot of damage. the emergency crews will wait until first light to see what kind of damage has been done. there are big fears the storm will have washed out route 12, the mate road on cape hatteras. >> as long as the band is playing i guess the spirits are relatively high despite the weather outside. thanks a lot for that report. steven portnoy from the north carolina coast. >> we'll of course be following this storm all morning honk. stay with abc news throughout the morning and of course throughout the day. now in other noise this morning, the mideast peace talks. for the first time in nearly two years the palestinian president and the israeli prime minister sit down together. >> both sides did agree on one thing, to meet again. john hendren has more from washington this morning. good morning, john. >> reporter: good morning, rob and mike. president obama is not the first commander in chief to seek peace in the middle east. by starting near the beginning of his term, this president hopes his efforts will finally
3:17am
seal the deal. president obama's first shot at forging a middle east peace pact began with a show of progress. >> president abbas and prime minister netanyahu agreed that these negotiations can be completed within one year. >> reporter: in the world of diplomacy, progress often means more talks. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and palestinian authority leader mahmoud abbas set a date for mid-november and promised to meet every two weeks after that until there's peace. >> we cannot and we will not impose a solution. only you can make the decisions necessary. >> reporter: the goal, a settlement that ends israel's 43-year occupation of the palestinian territory within the year, creating an independent palestinian state at peace with israel. >> together, we can lead our people to a historic future. >> reporter: abbas too vowed to work to resolve all outstanding conflicts. for president obama, hosting the first round of peace talks since the gaza war of 2008 brought negotiations to a halt, it was a hopeful sign. >> if we do not make the
3:18am
attempt, then failure is guaranteed. >> reporter: unlike his predecessors, he has years to follow up. >> this president, i believe, will succeed. >> reporter: president obama is seeking a prize that has eluded every president since jimmy carter. but he's doing what he can to ensure that if it fails it's not because he ran out the clock. rob and mike? >> many people are asking what is different about this particular peace negotiation? and the head of the media convoy, george mitchell, told the bbc this is happening in a much more behind the scenes manner. as well as it being an international approach, unlike some of the previous attempts that we've seen. >> behind closed doors, away from all the cameras. so real progress. so many stabs at this before, hopefully this is perhaps the one that makes some real headway. we'll see, as always, fingers crossed. coming up next, the usually outspoken governor of arizona. >> her silence durin
3:19am
3:20am
arizona governor jan brewer has made a name for herself certainly this year. she's the architect of her state's controversial anti-illegal immigration bill. >> brewer also made headlines this week, but for another reason. as david muir reports it was her loss of words. >> reporter: governor brewer signed the toughest immigration bill in the land. >> it as good bill. we cannot afford all this illegal immigration and everything that comes with it. the kidnappings and extortion and beheadings. >> which beheadings in arizona are you referring to? >> our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert, either buried or just lying out there, that have been beheaded. >> reporter: now up for election, the first televised debate. during her opening remarks -- >> we have done everything that we could possibly do --
3:21am
>> reporter: dat bate then turned contentious. one of her opponents asks about those beheadings. >> i call upon you today to say that there are no beheadings, that was a false statement. >> and you know, terry, i will call you out -- >> reporter: she did not address it. afterward -- >> please answer the question. about the headless bodies. do you still believe that? come on, governor. >> okay, thank you. >> reporter: the night was over. david muir, abc news. >> a lot of reaction to this story. what do we want to say about that? >> uh -- i -- uh -- >> yeah. >> actually, we do have a lot to say. the question in all seriousness, is this going to affect her ten-point lead over her opponent? i mean, this is politics and everything is watched closely. >> we're so human. people make mistakes. lose your train of thought, it

3:25am
and finally this half hour, they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. if that's the case apple must be blushing right now. >> the ipad has been a giant success for apple and now competitors have released tablet computers of their own. the bbc's rory cellan-jones reports. >> reporter: when it comes to shine and you get it, one company has been king for a decade. first apple's ipod, then its iphone, now the.-pad have persuaded millions to part with their cash. other big names in the gadget world. overpriced and only appeal for their looks. rather than their technology. here in berlin this week they're
3:26am
staging a fight back. it's one of the world's biggest gadget shows gets under way. korea's samsung is first out of the blocks with a new tablet computer. remind you of anything? yes, it does look like a smaller ipad. but this one runs with the rival google android software. and unlike apple's product, this one can take pictures too. it's taken apple's rivals some time to hit back. with total sales of $275 million, the ipod dominates the mp3 player market. its nearest rival has a tiny share. more than 50 million people now have an iphone. google android phones are beginning to overtake apple. and more than 3 million ipads have been sold since its spring launch. but this time, rivals like samsung have been quicker to respond. one technology blogger thinks other firms have learned a key lesson from apple.
3:27am
>> they're trying to represent this sexy lifestyle and tablets, phones, everything's just billed as being so easy once you get it out of the box, it just works, and that's very much something that apple's been offering for years. >> reporter: toshiba too has unveiled an ipad look-alike here. plenty of tablet computers here in all shapes and sizes. but they have one thing in common. just about all of them are likely to be much cheaper than apple's ipad. corey ank cor cor cor corey. >> there's really nothing that you cannot do on these things. >> this is accuweather's application for the i-pad. we are tracking earl. bottom line they're pretty cool, roo it? >> that's the accuweather application. all these imitators. everyone's snapping th

3:30am
hurricane earl's arrival. the storm's gusty brush with north carolina and the precautions being taken across the northeast. then, hillary clinton's clout. >> i think she has credibility. >> the secretary of state's diplomacy during long-awaited mideast peace talks. and, web trends. the sudden need to find facts about chocolate and lindsay lohan on the internet. it's friday, september 3rd. >> from abc news, this is "world news now." >> and it appears the biggest threat from hurricane earl, which is weakening thankfully, is the storm surge. not so much the wind gusts, as we maybe previously thought. but still, it's going to be there nonetheless. >> we've heard for days, at one point it was a category 5 storm, now a weak category 2 storm. so as things progress,
3:31am
hopefully it may not be as bad as folks feared. so that's the good news this morning. hi, everybody. i'm rob nelson. >> i'm mike marusarz sitting in for vinita nair. north carolina is taking a pounding from hurricane earl this morning as the storm now begins to turn to the northeast away from land. >> earl is now located off the coast of cape hatteras, north carolina. t.j. winick is joining us from atlantic beach this morning. good morning, t.j. >> reporter: rob and mike, good morning to you both. even with a category 2 hurricane you're still talking about winds up to 110 miles per hour and we're certainly getting some of the outer bands of that right now. the real concern right here in north carolina at this point is storm surge. what with these waves behind me and the flooding that can cause. despite mandatory evacuations in three coastal counties down here, officials can't force people out of their homes. so many have chosen to ride this one out. a state of emergency has been declared at this point in four
3:32am
states -- north carolina, virginia, maryland, and massachusetts. and certainly that should help getting those necessary resources to where they need to go as soon as the storm blows out to sea. now right now the storm is on a path to cape cod, massachusetts, with its 500,000 summer residents. even though a hurricane hitting the northeast is a once in a generation event, emergency officials up there promise that they will be ready. since the storm has been forecast, over 100,000 residents down here in the barrier islands have been forced to evacuate. rob and mike? >> t.j., from your vantage point, any discernible damage in that area or are things pretty minimal? >> reporter: i would say things are minimal. of course, we've had some moments of extreme weather down here. the surf, about 12 feet high. the rain, the wind. certainly the sky has been ominous. but overall, a lot less damage than people expected. and a lot smoother situation, thank goodness. >> certainly good news. t.j., thank you very much for
3:33am
that report. as hurricane earl leaves his mark on north carolina, people in the northeast are now watching and paying attention. >> accuweather's ava dinges is following the hurricane's every move. ava, the big question, what can we expect now? >> good morning, mike and rob. and unfortunately, we could expect conditions to worsen across the outer banks, at least into the next couple of hours. because earl is still expected to parallel the outer banks as we head throughout these early morning hours. its sustained winds at about 105 miles per hour. the good news it's about 50 to 100 miles offshore. that means the worst of the winds are going to be offshore as well. but even the outer banks could see tropical storm force winds throughout these next couple of hours. gusts as high as hurricane force. it looks like earl will be heading out of their neck of the woods and the weather should be improving in the outer banks as we head throughout the rest of friday. just as things improve in the outer banks, worsening in the
3:34am
new england area. as the waves are already pounding onto the new england coastline and we expect the waves to increase along cape cod as well. cape cod could be facing stronger winds as hurricane earl may track even closer to it. they could see gusts as high as hurricane storm force as we head through. the worst of the weather into friday night. now back to you, mike and rob. >> ava dinges, thank you so much. stay with abc news throughout the morning and throughout the day for live reports on hurricane earl. coming up later this half hour, "american landscape" coverage from north carolina. earl of course is the big story but now let's turn to the rest of the forecast around the country. thunderstorms and heavy rain from the great lakes into the ohio, tennessee, and mississippi valleys. wet in louisiana and east texas. showers for the southern tier of florida. meanwhile, light rain across minnesota and wisconsin. >> cool in the midwest and great plains. 62 in minneapolis. 71 in chicago.
3:35am
75 in kansas city. 80s in the northeast. and 93 in atlanta. seattle hit 77. and salt lake city 86. shifting gears to other news now, no oil has seeped into the gulf of mexico following another rig explosion there. the blast took place about 200 miles west of the bp oil well. all 13 crew members were safely rescued after they jumped into the gulf. they did manage to shut down production on the rig though before evacuating. it's still unclear what sparked this explosion. early reports about a mile-long oil sheen nearby, though, have been knocked down. the fbi is revealing details of what it's calling the largest human trafficking case in u.s. history. six suspects are accused of luring 400 laborers from thailand. they apparently forced them to work at sites from coast to coast. if convicted, the accused face sentences up to 70 years. police say four more explosives were found at the home of a man who stormed discovery channel's headquarters this week in maryland. that's in addition to the four
3:36am
devices that were found in the building after police shot and killed that suspect. it also turns out the suspect, john lee, was carrying pistols, not handguns as police previously reported. the first day of mideast peace talks ended with a promise to keep talking. the leaders will meet again in two weeks. secretary of state hillary clinton will also be there. jake tapper has a look at what she's facing. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton has never before faced a challenge as daunting as this one. >> this is in the national security interests of the united states. but we cannot and we will not impose a solution. >> reporter: the world will be watching to see what she brings to the table. >> i think she has credibility. now, whether that translates into diplomatic skills, i don't know. frankly, she's untested as a mediator. >> reporter: some see clinton's experience as a politician as an asset, since she will understand not just policy but politics. how the palestinian and israeli
3:37am
leaders can solve the negotiations back home. >> she's got the best type of political mind that knows where you meet the point of principle and knows where you need the subtlety and compromise. >> reporter: secretary clinton has requested historical background materials, looking at past efforts at peace in the region to see what worked and what did not. what she may have found is sometimes, a ruthless ability to manipulate and to bluff is what works. >> you need to be really tough. and probably, pretty devious. >> reporter: in 1975, the ford white house, frustrated with israeli intransigence during a peace negotiation, claimed the u.s. was reassessing its middle east policy. but it was not true. years later, secretary of state henry kissinger admitted the reassessment was "theater. there was nothing to reassess." >> you really need to look at life or the negotiation as if it were a chess board, anticipating what the next move is and probably the next move after that. >> reporter: kissinger had been eager to make the israelis nervous.
3:38am
and eventually the israelis came to the table. jake tapper, abc news, new york. well, the summer now wrapping up. school bells are ringing across the globe. children aren't the only ones heading back to class. >> that's right. the so-called panda school has reopened in southwest china. the curriculum at the panda preserve didn't seem too tough at all. look at that. >> not bad. actually looks more like less than than an important lesson. the pandas spent most of the day romping around, playing a scale, and climbing some trees. not a bad school day at all. >> all together -- aww! >> more "world news" after this.

preparing for earl as well with a state of emergency already declared in some areas. welcome back, everybody. the east coast has been preparing for this storm all week. as earl ruined many holiday plans across the east coast. >> the outer banks on the coast of north carolina is earl's first target. for its impact there, here's "american landscape" coverage from raleigh-durham's wtvd. >> for breaking news, abc 11 eyewitness news at 11:00 starts right now. >> breaking news. hurricane earl weakens but it's still a powerful storm. with 105-mile-per-hour winds. the category 2 hurricane is off the coast of north carolina right now and the outer banks should feel the effects into the wee hours of the morning. >> take a look at this new eyewitness video just in to us. big waves from earl crashing onto the pier in surf city. and there are dozens of people standing on the pier watching it as it happens. >> tonight we are live up and down the north carolina coast with the very latest.
3:43am
good evening, everyone. >> hi, everyone. believe it or not, 26 million people in 68 counties stretching from here in north carolina all the way to maine are expected to feel the impact of earl in the next 48 hours. but right now, it is arriving on our coast. here's a live look at the outer banks. this is kill devil hills. where you can see the sea oats are waving in the breeze. the breeze there upwards of 25 miles an hour. the surf picking up. we've seen light rain this evening. >> and take a look at the crystal coast this evening. this is on the atlantic beach. check out the surf here. we're expecting the storm surge to swallow up a good portion of the beach. that pier is getting a little wobbly tonight too. >> here is the latest hurricane track. national hurricane center moving north-northeast at 18. 150 miles officially from cape hatteras. it's moving pretty quickly now. and this track if you were with us earlier today and this evening is right along this
3:44am
line, the 70 degree longitude line. it's now east of that, which is the second bit of good news. the hurricane has weakened. it's forecast to pass only about 100 miles or so to the east of cape hatteras which means the weather won't get as bad as we thought at 5:00 or 6:00. >> now to atlantic beach where hurricane earl is storing up major swells. probably where we've seen most of the rain this evening. a lot of people have called it an early night because of that. the most experienced hurricane reporter in our state greg barnes is live in atlantic beach. he's riding out the storm there, trying to stay dry. doesn't look like it's working. >> reporter: that's not going to happen. i've seen them big, i've seen them bad. earl doesn't seem to be that bad just yet. as you can see, here comes the water. we're getting a pretty good storm surge here. let me show you this. what we're seeing right now is a lot of the sea foam as it comes that's an indication just how turbulent the water is out there.
3:45am
you look toward the end of the pier here at atlantic beach, several hundred yards out. you can see some pretty big breakers are building out there. wn repf to they crash against the pier. here comes a good one now. they really are causing some foam, causing not a whole lot of damage. they're breaking against the pier. that was a good one. and we've got a couple of concerns about the pier right now. we had two pilings in a section about 100 feet from the end. one piling literally gave way earlier today and floated off. the second piling over that section, just wobbling, looks like a f iike a f it may go later on in the evening. the rest of the pier seems tobe it's not wobbll ba we'll wait and see how much toll the storm takes on it. as you can see, we're getting some pretty good rain now. we just clocked some wind speed down here on the beach. around 31, 32 miles an hour. the good news is the wind continues tof th let me get bob to pan up again to the porch where we've got all
3:46am
our tv lights lighting up the beach. you can see the rain coming down. you see it's blowing toward the beach. it's blowing e in that wind as itts, as you see the waves out there, you can see as they break some of the spray is being blown back out. that's an indication the wind is blowing against the waves. that may keep some of the storm surge down. if you notice o abo poiout foots iand ht everybody else >> our thanks to raleigh-durham's coverage. here is where hurricane earl is right now on the north carolina t. we see this image here on the the concern is as it moves up to the northeast, massachusetts and cape cod, of course a popular vacation spot. >> 500,000 folks. >> for a lot of people on labor day, which is why president obama has signed an emergency disaster declaration already for massachusetts. >> this thing obviously as we said all week was a massive storm at first, a strong cat 4,

3:51am
though is that he's also been linked to lindsay lohan, to paris hilton. and i'm not trying to say anything bad about those lovely young women but jennifer seems to be a different kind of caliber here. so i'm interested that she'd be interested in someone who's dated those two before. they were spotted out. >> hard rock cafe heir, right? >> yeah. >> i think we have the answer. >> she's not starving, let's be honest here. she likes going with the younger guys, doing the cougar thing. messing with john mayer for a while, now this guy. do what you got to do, john, i don't appreciate being cheated on, that's all i'm saying. >> you like shakira. she's a dancer and stuff. very big internationally. we have an interesting thing to report, that her song "waka waka," have you heard it? waka," have you ou terengs ♪ >> so you see the soccer there. this is big -- talking about the world cup, sort of the theme there. and overall, it broke records.
